Developed in collaboration with Indigenous Elders, Knowledge Keepers and educators, the KAIROS Blanket Exercise (KBE) is an interactive and experiential teaching tool that explores the historic and contemporary relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in the land we now know as Canada.
The virtual KAIROS Blanket Exercise (vKBE) maintains the impact and participatory nature of the original in-person KAIROS Blanket Exercise, while ensuring that participants are well supported as they experience the history and shared stories of Indigenous peoples on Turtle Island. Hosted on the Zoom platform, the vKBE incorporates new interactive and engaging elements that visually and emotionally demonstrate the history of Indigenous peoples in Canada through colonization to present times. The vKBE is a live, participatory experience, not a webinar or lecture. Our facilitation teams support participants via online features and special measures, and host virtual talking circles for the second half of the exercise. Maximum 60 participants.
